Newcastle return to Premier League action tomorrow when they make the long trip to the capital to take on relegation-battling Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

New Palace manager Tony Pulis is looking to drag the Eagles out of the bottom three and continue his sides’ good form, after seeing them beat Cardiff and test Chelsea last time out.

The Magpies are in good form though, having won three out of their last five games and beating Manchester United in their last away game.

Alan Pardew has no fresh injury worries ahead of the game and only Ryan Taylor remains a long-term loss for Newcastle.
The Toon boss can once again call on Yohan Cabaye after the Frenchman served his one-match suspension against Southampton, so Vurnon Anita or Shola Ameobi could lose their place in the starting line-up.

Moussa Sissoko and Cheick Tiote are one booking away from suspension, while Steven Taylor hopes to be included after returning to full fitness. The Geordie native has reportedly been linked with a loan move away from Tyneside, although Pardew was quick to quash any possible interest from other suitors.

Palace are without Jack Hunt, Glenn Murray, Adlene Guedioura and Jerome Thomas but Dean Moxey may return from injury. In-form striker Marouane Chamakh has scored in his last three Premier League games and is enjoying something of a revival under Pulis and should be in the starting eleven again tomorrow.

Chamakh’s former Bordeaux colleague Yoan Gouffran will be looking to keep up a similar vein of form, having netted five times this season. The Newcastle winger scored against Southampton last week and a goal against Palace would further ease the pressure on Loic Remy, who has now gone four games without a goal.
